Prada has got to be one of the best-known, most coveted brands on the planet, and surprisingly it's is also one of the oldest, initially founded by the Prada brothers in 1913 in Milan as a shop selling leather goods.
After passing to a daughter-in-law and on again to her daughter, the brand really started its ascension proper in the 1980s with expansion through Europe, a line of shoes and a concentration on dark colours that appealed to the wealthy/trendy. Miu Miu, a younger spinoff brand, was created in the early nineties and the brand continues to expand, widely considered and a status symbol, being mentioned in the title of the film/book “The Devil Wears Prada”.
As one of the coolest names on the planet they obviously had to have a boutique on the coolest, most chic street in the planet. When you're down avenue Montaigne make sure you don't miss it.
“Earth as Haven: Under the Canopy of Love” is a new exhibition that takes place at the Musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet (MNAAG) from October 18th, 2017, until January 15th, 2018, and that is dedicated to a masterpiece created by the contemporary artist, Jayashree Chakravarty.
Being the 5th carte blanche organized by the museum, the exhibit puts on display a fascinating work of art that was made by Chakravarty, particularly for this occasion.
Cotton, leaves, branches, weeds, sterns, Nepalese paper, aluminum, and more, all of these materials were creatively and cleverly used by the artist to produce a unique and magnificent piece that illustrates the world of insects and its outstanding secrets.
Boasting a selection of some of the finest Asian artworks, Musée Guimet is without a doubt one the museums that you don’t have to miss visiting in Paris. Besides, this exhibit is truly one-of-a-kind as it presents for the first time an organic artwork in the museum.
